Hello Friends,

First and foremost, we hope you and your families are healthy and safe!

In the midst of so much disruption and uncertainty, we are deeply grateful for the incredible community of artists, audiences and supporters who are part of Hudson Theatre Works' family -- whether you have been with us since we started or bought your first ticket to a Hudson Theatre Works show this season.

We are pushing back our PlayWorks readings and 10 Minute Festival, to hopefully, May. And, unfortunately, we are canceling our spring show "Bunnies" until the fall of 2020.

Please check back for updates. 

In these coming weeks and months, we want to do everything we can to care of our community. Many of you have reached out to us regarding how you can help during these difficult times. If you are able to consider a donation to Hudson Theatre Works, that’s what we need most now.

We also want to find ways to continue to engage with you, and to inspire and stimulate and connect us all as we stay in our homes. We are huddling together (virtually!) to figure out ways to be of service to our artists and community during this time. We hope to be able to teach playwrighting classes thru Zoom, sometime in April. If you are interested in studying with our resident playwright, Joanne Hoersch, please email us at and put playwrighting class in the subject line for more information.

One eternal element of making theatre is adaptability, and we are going to stay nimble and creative as we navigate this shifting terrain.

Thank you for being part of Hudson Theatre Works' family. We are profoundly heartened by the solidarity and creativity we have felt from our community.

PlayWorks Postponed until, hopefully, until May!
